Statement of Reasons
Should there be any reason as to why your clearance eligibility may come into question, you will receive a Statement of Reasons (SOR). The SOR provides information about why your clearance is subject to denial. There are a number of reasons why applicants may have their clearance denied, including:
- Financial considerations
- Personal conduct / criminal conduct
- Foreign preference / foreign influence
- Drug involvement / alcohol consumption
- Sexual behavior
- Use of technology systems
- Handling protected information
- Psychological conditions
